The supplemental restraint system(SRS), is a vehicular safety device that has its literal meaning indicates, is designed to deploy in the rare instance of a crash as an air bag (or air-bags) to protect the occupants of a vehicle.
Because this is not a purely engineering literature, i do not have to bore you with the details of the mechatronics concepts that run the safety technology. However, the following are the vital information you need to know about the SRS sign that comes up on your vehicle’s dashboard.
When the sign comes on permanently, the vehicle is letting you know that the protective system is dysfunctional and the air-bags will not deploy in case of an accident.
The first thing you must do on noticing that the SRS icon is permanently lit is to get the vehicle scanned by a competent auto-diagnostician who it must be emphasized is going to be using a professional level diagnostic machine to do the job. This is important because almost all the DO-it-Yourself diagnostic tools out there cannot (i repeat cannot) scan SRS- related faults in automobiles.
Diagnosing the SRS sign apart from using a good professional level scanner, is a tricky task; this is because, aside from the defect that may directly emanate from the air-bag itself, faults in the steering wheel pad, front passenger air-bag assembly, curtain shield air-bag assembly, seat belt pretension and other related components can trigger the warning sign.It has also been discovered that some auto technicians ignorantly, through bad working methods like a roadside mechanic hammering away at the frame of a vehicle;which can be interpreted by the vehicles computer as a crash either dangerously deploy the air-bag or cause the defect in the system.
